Director: The Brothers Strause (Alien vs. Predator: Requiem)

Starring: Eric Balfour, Scottie Thompson, Donald Faison, Brittany Daniel, Crystal Reed, David Zayas

Skyline: starts well, ends badly. Its potential is (almost) endless. It extracts the best parts of well known sci-fi's; mysterious, detailed creatures (Alien), impressive ships from outer space (Battleship) and an invasion of the human race (Independence Day). Skyline even looks flashy, with its pale, stark greys and and an over-usage of lens flare that would make J.J. Abrams proud. A storyline would be nice though. And a decent cast. And a relatively decent script. All we know is an alien race is attempting to take over the world, via Los Angeles. The Brother Strause's low budget shows, with the locations restricted to one skyscraper and its surrounding area. The well known T.V. cast, Eric Balfour (24), Donald Faison (Scrubs) and David Zayas (Dexter) evaporate under the crumbling dialogue, accompanied by the cheesiest on-screen you'll ever see.
